I am doing a story on a woman named Susie Krabacher who runs an organization called Mercy and Sharing in Haiti, and I wanted to contrast her with someone who is Haitian and doing similar work. Susie works out of Aspen and has an orphanage for both functional and handicapped children as well as a clinic and a school in Cite Soleil. The difference between trying to do this from Aspen (she comes once a month) and actually living and working amongst the people on a daily basis what interests me. If you know Susie personally and would like to share your impressions, I would also appreciate that. Thanks in advance for your help. My email is [email protected]

Having attended series of seminars,listened to lectures and experienced how children are really suffering,especially the orphans,whose parents died as a result of HIV/AIDS,that there was no attention payed to their well-being,I have now determined to set up a CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION, which would take care of children and everything that would make them be healthy.
It is as a result of this,that I would like you to give me advice on how this can be achieved by me,since you've had the experience of creating one.This has to do with the passion and love I personally have for children.
Also,should you wish to have an international office here in Nigeria,I would welcome you so that we can both try all our best to add values to the children's life and make them become important personalties in the society.
Your candid advice would be highly appreciated by me.

Hey... I didn't read all the ranting above, just enough to say I don't want to read anymore.

Here is the reason I am here. Last night I had some friends over and we got to talking about the clean water problem all over the world. We decided that we want to go dig a well somewhere.

After some research we choose Haiti.

Can anyone here help me by giving me some contacts in Haiti that are trusted and capable of digging wells?

Can wells be dug in Haiti?

Can I and 5 - 8 friends go over there for a week and dig a well or two?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Send all the Haitians in FL back to take care of these babies. All the Haitian do here is collect welfare and stand aroudn at Publix doing nothing.

It is unfortunate that there are always a few bad apples that tend to cast a bad light on those doing good. I worked and lived in Haiti for 14 years. I saw many so called orphanages run by both foreigners and Haitians that were no more than money making schemes at best and child traffickers at worst. However I know of and was involved with several that were and are doing a fantastic job. I also agree with Rene that the best answer is to help the entire family. Education is the key. My advice to anyone wanting to be involved in work in Haiti is do your homework. Check out the mission or orphanage thoroughly before giving. Do not be discouraged by the scammers. Help in any way you can. I still make 2 or 3 trips a year to this country that has stolen my heart. I will be there on the 19 of this month with a team of doctors working on post and pre-natal care and education. God bless!

Hello All,

It was very helpful to read all of the posts here. I have started a non-profit based out of California and I am very interested in helping in Haiti. I have a small dental/medical team that can provide free care where there is need. I would like to learn more about where the greatest need is and if there are places that you know of where we can help. I would like to see if we can go to a reputable orphanage do you have contact information? Rene did you ever visit the place Zodiac was speaking of?

Thanks,

world vision help the families of Haiti when you sponsor a child, you are also given postage details to send gifts to the children you sponsor. I did this many years ago but children on the street need all the help possible both medical, education and family life that schools (orphanage) can provide. I have helped with children in orphanages in Chernobyl that the rest of the world ran away from. Jesus and love are the keys for orphan children.

and a soul is what makes up a country, If the answer to any poor country is to take away there children, then what country will be left? Is the answer to a hungry child, a tall cement wall around her and call it a childrens home? Is the answer to family poverty is to sell one of there children, so the others can live? Please! Do not mix the christian thing to do, with the right thing to do. The answer to any poor child, is to help the parent. If we help the grandmother that so wants to raise the child after loosing her daughter, does that make that child an orphan? An orphan is a child that cannot find anyone to give it love but a stranger. Lets make sure that we are really the only stranger that can give that child love, before we adopt them out of the country. We have seen how the Vietnames so called orphans, affect the child as an adult and the families left behind in Vietnam, Lets not make the same mistake with Haiti.

for those of you that would like to see some of the amazing things people are doing for the children of Haiti, check out chances4children.org this is an orphanage founded by the most unlikely couple. Craig Juntunen recently wrote a book, Both Ends Burning: My Story of Adopting 3 Children from Haiti, the opening line of the book is; I had a vasectomy when I was 30, it is the most real and inspiring story you will ever read. I am a 21 year old college student and I have had the privilege of watching the Juntunen family become a family, I sat at their dinning room table just 3 days ago and watched these 3 beautiful human beings interact with one another and share love and laugh that may not have been an option if not for Kathi and Craig. So PLEASE read his vook all proceeds go directly to Haitians to improve water systems and education, there is so much to be done and so many ways to help.

The only thing I can ask of all of you is to inspire someone the way the Juntunens have inspired me!

The Haitian Orphanage plan...

The Haitian orphanage plan is to sell their kids to people who will have them beg for money in the streets of Dominican Republic....
